Judith Regan Is This Close to Throwing a Phone at Sunset Tower Hotel Staff
Judith Regan, the embattled publisher of Harper Collins' Regan Books, and the woman responsible for signing OJ Simpson's infamous "confession" book was ousted the other day from her own imprint. The word around town is that Reagan was fired for making anti-semitic slurs to her co-workers.
So what's a woman scorned supposed to do? Head to a Hollywood hotel. Radar Online reports that Regan and her kids have been holed up at the Sunset Tower since last Friday. But when one of their reporters tried to get a hold of Regan, they had no luck:
When Radar called the hotel's switchboard and asked for Regan's room, the call was duly transferred. A woman who identified herself as Mary answered, but insisted, "You've got the wrong room." Upon a second call to the switchboard, the operator claimed--whoops--Regan actually checked out this morning. (And if she didn't, it's a fair bet the operator received a profanity-laced lesson in call-screening.)
Radar goes on to mention that Truman Capote once said of the Sunset Tower that every major scandal has happened there. Glad to see Judith Regan is helping this hotel out with its Hollywood Scandal rating. Perhaps she should invite OJ up for drinks?
